Twigby, the Sprint MVNO with voice and text roaming on Verizon, has just increased the amount of data included with all of its plans. One featured data allotment now includes 2GB of 4G LTE data for $10/month. Previously only 1GB of data was included. Twigby's base talk plan also includes more minutes. For $9 customers can now get 300 minutes, instead of 200. New customers can get 25% off the listed rates for 6 months.
Twigby's Updated Talk And Data Allotments
Twigby allows its subscribers to pick the number of minutes that they'd like their plan to have each month for a set price. Data allotments can then be added to their plan at various price points as well.

Here are Twigby's updated voice plans, with changes highlighted and special rates listed for a new customer's first 6 months of service:

Sprint MVNO prices have been dropping quite a bit lately. This move was needed by Twigby in order to be able to continue to compete in the market. Even with the updated prices, Twigby still isn't the cheapest game in town. For instance, an unlimited talk plan with 2GB of data will cost you $25/month on Twigby. While that's not expensive, the same plan will only cost you $19/month on Tello. Where Twigby really shines is with its inclusion of free talk and text roaming on the Verizon network. That's something that Tello does not have, and something that most Sprint MVNO's don't have either.
